Tyler Union Shares Environmental Tips with Local 4th Graders

Tyler Union volunteers recently partnered with the Calhoun County Extension Office on Earth Day to staff learning stations designed to reinforce subject matter taught in classrooms in an outdoor setting for over 800 fourth graders. The students had the opportunity to learn about conservation, healthy habits, water safety, safe food preparation and domesticated and wild animals (which was a favorite).

No one was surprised to learn that Frantina Wilson and Mark Vess who stepped up and took over two of the educational stations, for both days, when county employees were called away. Frantina took over the Recycle Relay station while Mark took the Wildlifestation, even the snake handling.

Special thanks to Tyler Union volunteers Jason Askew, Tonja Brown, Julie Campbell, Chris Hyche, Kacie Johns, Renea McGathy, Jerome McQueen, April Pearson, Chris Smith, Amanda Thrasher, Sara Tongsuvone, Mark Vess and Frantina Wilson
